True Perception


with Tom Semmes
March 5 / 7:00 PM - April 2 / 9:00 PM

Join us for a five-week group exploration of True Perception: The Path of Dharma Art, a seminal collection of teachings by Trungpa Rinpoche on creativity, perception and awareness in our everyday activity. Through reading, discussion, and interactive exercises, we will explore a view that investigates the relationship between meditation and creative process. In this course, we will discover how synchronizing body and mind with nonaggression lets us overcome our preconceptions to see things as they are, leading to expanded creativity in all aspects of life.


This course gives an overview of the five-part Shambhala Art program and is a good introduction for the workshop, Shambhala Art Part One & Two held Saturday, April 26-28
